Bitcoin (BTC) vastly outperformed traditional wealth preservation assets during the United States-China trade war, American digital asset manager Grayscale confirmed in research published on June 11. Updating “Hedging Global Liquidity Risk with Bitcoin” — a report originally from 2016 — Grayscale noted that bitcoin gained 47% in the period from May 5-31. The next best-performing asset, the Japanese yen, gained 2.1%. In addition, many assets saw a drawdown due to the trade dispute, which is ongoing; the Nasdaq Composite index shed 8.7%, making it the worst performer out of global equities. Grayscale also noted the depreciation in the Chinese yuan, a factor that others have already said spurred bitcoin’s bull market in May due to local investor uncertainty. “While the drawdown appears to be in its very early stages, Bitcoin is getting a jump before these ri..

The size of the legitimate BTC trade volume is just as large as the bitcoin futures market, Bitwise tells the SEC. At the 1997 edition of the annual Worldwide Developers Conference — an event put together by iPhone-maker Apple Inc. to communicate directly with its community of developers and users — a participant asked founder and then-CEO Steve Jobs the following question: "What do we do about the press? Wall Street Journal reporters get up in the morning, sell Apple short and then go write stories about us. And, it’s clear that it’s perception versus reality. They don’t know s--- about operating systems. They don’t know anything about tools. They don’t know what’s going on in the future. They don’t know that we’re building icebergs, and building from the bottom up." The bitcoin (BTC) market is in a somewhat similar position.
